I’m a true believer in the power of prayer.
It’s how miracles happen, and how some are able to find the light even in darkest of times. Last month, we had the pleasure of getting to photograph at Deer Creek Country Club for the third time! This time, for Christina and Anthony. If you’re familiar with Florida weather, you know that it’s unpredictable, like, All The Time. Thankfully, with the help of some of the staff at Deer Creek, the bride and groom’s fathers and their friends, and with a whole lot of prayer, Christina got her dream of saying I do outdoors.
The day started just like every wedding day, with us arriving at the bride’s getting ready suite as they finish hair and makeup. The ladies from Uniique Image did an absolute fabulous job at getting the girls hair and makeup ready! I mean, Christina and her girls looked absolutely stunning! Christina wore a jaw dropping dress from Calle Blanche and her ladies’ dresses were from Revelry. Once we finished photographing the beautiful bride and ladies, we headed over to the groom’s suite, where Anthony, his groomsmen, and father were relaxing and having some good laughs. We love our guys on wedding days, and I feel like we don’t show them enough love!
Christina and Anthony decided on sharing a first look at the venue before their ceremony. If you know us, you know we LOVE first looks. For this day specifically, we couldn’t be more lucky that they decided to do a first look, because the weather didn’t plan on playing nice just shortly after. Thankfully we were able to get some bride and groom portraits in early!
As the ceremony time was fast approaching, the rain fell. It would stop for a short while, then fall again. I can’t tell you how many times the staff of Deer Creek, and their amazing coordinator, Giselle, ran outside to start prepping the ceremony location, just to have to run back inside because of the rain. Anthony had a sense of calm about him though. As his bride was tucked away in the suite, he kept saying “We’ll push it back if we have to”. He knew Christina wanted her outdoor ceremony, and God willing, she was going to get it!
When the rain decided to rest, and a ray of sunshine shone through the clouds above, family members, along with the staff, rushed outside to dry chairs, and clear the pathway from puddles. Leaf blowers and large brooms were used during this time, believe it or not! It’s amazing to see everyone coming together to make things happen on wedding days!
Christina and Anthony, thank you for choosing us, out of all the choices you had, as your wedding photographers. We’re honored to have been able to capture your special day! We hope you both had such a fun time on your honeymoon and enjoy just some of our favorites from your beautiful wedding day!
